ronda rousey

While Ronda Rousey typically does her best to avoid engaging in battles over social media, that doesn’t hold true for her mom, Dr. AnnMaria De Mars.

De Mars has responded to comments made by Cris “Cyborg” Justino, who remains at 145 pounds and out of the UFC. She is the current Invicta FC featherweight champion.

Rousey recently earned a victory over Cat Zingano, scoring a submission in just 14 seconds. Justino finished Charmaine Tweet and is expected to return to the Octagon for Invicta FC in July.

The two had a little started up a little “feud” via Twitter recently:

De Mars also posted a blog regarding Rousey moving to 145 pounds and why she doesn’t need to.

Failing several drug tests has dropped Anderson Silva to fifth in the middleweight rankings, as the UFC updated their official standings recently.

Silva, who returned from a year-long layoff to defeat Nick Diaz, dropped three spots. Lyoto Machida, Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold all passed him. “The Spider” tested positive for numerous banned substances in both his pre- and post-fight tests.

Tim Boetsch and Brad Tavares also moved up a spot to 13th and 14th, while Roan Carneiro debuted at 15th after defeating Mark Munoz.

Tony Ferguson, fresh off another victory, debuted at 13th in the lightweight Top-15, passing Jorge Masvidal and Al Iaquinta. Eddie Alvarez and Bobby Green flipped for 10th.

Dong Hyun Kim and Jake Ellenberger each passed Kelvin Gastelum at welterweight, with Kim being ninth and Ellenberger 10th.

Holly Holm jumped three spots to 10th in the women’s bantamweight rankings after besting Raquel Pennington.

ronda rousey

Bethe Correia believes she is the one to end Ronda Rousey’s reign over the UFC female bantamweight division.

Correia, who flew to Los Angeles from Brazil this past weekend to see Rousey vs. Cat Zingano, stated that the champion is “really selfish.”

“She did a good thing that was bringing the UFC the female fights,” Correia said (thanks to MMAFighting.com for the comments). “She convinced Dana (White) to do it. But I don’t think she’s a good champion. I think she’s really selfish. She just things about herself, about making movies, dressing well, showing up.

“I’m not gonna be like this. I’m gonna be a real champ. I’m gonna do something for the people. I’m gonna be the people’s champ.”

Like past challengers Sara McMann and Cat Zingano, Correia (9-0) sports an unbeaten record. Rousey made mention of that during her post-fight interview, saying she would like to take the “0” off her record. During her time in the UFC, Correia has defeated Rousey’s “Four Horsewomen” stablemates Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler.

“I’m waiting for the UFC to decide, I’m ready,” she said. “I’ve done everything that’s possible in my way.”

quinton rampage jackson

Bellator MMA announced on Monday that they have filed an injunction to stop Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s planned UFC return in April.

After competing three times for Bellator, Jackson resigned with the UFC and was tabbed for April 25 in Canada vs. Fabio Maldonado.

According to a release sent out by Bellator, Jackson still has three fights left on his contract that is exclusive with them – thus, barring him from fighting any other promotion.

Below is the complete release:

Today, Bellator MMA was compelled to go to court to stop Quinton “Rampage” Jackson from fighting in an April 25th bout promoted by Bellator’s competitor, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Jackson, who has completed only three fights of his exclusive six-fight contract with Bellator, is barred by contract from fighting for any promoter other than Bellator. Our lawsuit for an injunction and related relief – filed in the Chancery Division of the Superior Court in Burlington County, New Jersey – will compel Jackson to honor his contractual agreement. We look forward to having one of our MMA stars fighting for Bellator again.
